Move "New Texts" to primary cell[edit]

Our main page feels kind of stale; once a month (maybe) a new featured slot; equally spaced a PotM. Our most dynamic cell is our New Texts. Is there any opposition to moving it to the top-left corner? (see here for an example)

I might be wrong, but I think the encouragement has been to post with new meaning "at least proofread," however, I think that any validated texts can be considered new to post. As far as the picture I included, while unnecessary, I believe it simply looks nice and can roll with whatever newest text is added. - Theornamentalist (talk) 14:28, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Esperanto Interlink[edit]

The Esperanto Wikisource has its own domain now. Could somebody add an interwiki link on the main page? Thank you, --Frglz (talk) 04:26, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Arabic interlink[edit]

The Arabic (ar:) interwiki occurs twice, and the first of them points to a non-existent page ar:Oldws marker. --Lanhiaze (talk) 15:58, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

  • That's intentional, there's a javascript imported into MediaWiki:Common.js that turns the first occurrence into a link to oldwikisource:. This is a workaround to a bug that doesn't allow normal interwiki language links to oldwikisource. The script was temporarily broken on FF and Chrome after the upgrade to 1.18. It should be fixed now.--Doug.(talk contribs) 05:12, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
  • Thank you. Yes, everything is fine now. --Lanhiaze (talk) 13:00, 14 November 2011 (UTC)


The link to Vietnamese wikisource in the main page is wrong. It needed to fix. Thanks.Trongphu (talk) 04:38, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done and I have asked why the equivalent page was deleted at vi:billinghurst sDrewth 09:07, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
Simply enough main page is not a Vietnamese words. People who speak Vietnamese wouldn't understand what main page even mean. We called main page as "Trang Chính" in Vietnamese language. And btw if you ever have any problem related to Vietnamese Wikisource then you probably should contact "Thành viên:Tranminh360" in VW. He is the only one that actively working on Wikisource but he doesn't want to be an admin.Trongphu (talk) 18:10, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
